Dark Rider – Ambush At Fallen Wood

Posted in Blog Series, Dark Rider, Fantasy, Fiction, Story, Writing with tags , , , on September 26, 2011 by darkjade68

As the Dark Rider, Largoth and Corwick’s Daughter Dylia made there way into The Fallen Wood… All was cast with an uneasy quiet.

Even the White Owl flew Above the Wood itself. No good would be found here, and the sooner they got through it the better. Though The Dark Rider himself did not seem overly concerned, Largoth and Dylia seemed exceedingly alert.

“This place makes me uneasy…” spoke Largoth. Hearing this did not please Dylia. “Perhaps it’s time I armed myself” she spoke, stopped, and started to put on some Warrior Gear.

“How’s this…” Largoth looked at her and nodded. The Dark Rider was not as easily impressed. “Eh…” he replied. Dylia smiled “You don’t like a Woman that can defend herself, eh… Might put you out of the Hero Business”.  The Dark Rider did not dignify this with a reply.

As the Nighttime Fell Upon them, the Forest seemed to swallow them up. It was at this point that they came across the Elven Village of Nah. “We’d best move on, The Elves of Nah will not appreciate us being here” spoke Largoth. “Hmmph…” the Dark Rider replied. And so they kept moving. Near the midnight hour, they decided to stop and make camp, being they weren’t likely to make it out of Fallen Wood before morning, it was probably best that they traveled by day. Though it wasn’t much Lighter during the day. “I’ll take First Watch” Largoth spoke. “No, we’ll do only one watch, and then move on… I’ll take the watch, you get some sleep… Both of you”, and so Largoth and Dylia went to sleep as best they could.

It wasn’t until late into the Night that “whack!” a rock hit the Dark Rider on his shoulder from above and behind him. He was surprised to see an Elven Woman up in the trees.

Apparently she had tossed the stone at him to get his attention, as she motioned with her Bow off in the distance, indicating he should make his way over there… And quickly.

He did not hesitate. By now a solid Snow had Covered the ground.

As he made his way through the thicket of wood beyond, the Attack Came.

“TIME TO DIE LITTLE MAN!!” it was the Man Golem. The Dark Rider was quick to draw his swords. SWOOSHH!! the Golem Swung his Giant Axe. But the Dark Rider was much too Agile. “Back for another round, eh” the Dark Rider spat. “YOU WILL GIVE ME THE GIRL, THEN MAYBE OGO LET YOU LIVE!!” SWISHHH!! the Golem swung at him again. Suddenly several Arrows Struck the Golem, as the Elven Girl in the trees aided the Dark Rider. He looked up and nodded at her when– THUNKK!! the Golem shoulder first knocked him against a tree. “Ouch… Ok, that hurt” as he slumped to the ground. VOOMP VOOMP VOOMP!!! several more Arrows strike the Golem, and suddenly Lagroth and Dyria were there and stabing at him. “ARRGGHH!!” it howls as it attempts to gimp away, but the Dark Rider would have none of it, as he tossed both of his Blades into it’s back, and it fell dead. SCREECH!!! the Dark Rider looked back behind to the trees where the Elf had vanished, and the White Owl Toar away.

Dark Rider – Corwick’s Wish

Posted in Blog Series, Dark Rider, Fantasy, Fiction, Love, Story, Writing with tags , , on September 21, 2011 by darkjade68

The Morning couldn’t have come soon enough… Mira was there, that meant there was more competition for Work than Largoth had forseen.

“I have lead you wrongly Dark Rider… The Work appears to be little, and the Mercenaries Plentiful…” The Dark Rider put his hand on Largoth’s shoulder “You Worry too much old friend”. Just then an Elven

Priest appeared. “You are the one they call Dark Rider?” Dark Rider looked first at Largoth, and then the Priest. “Yes?”

“I have need of your services… And your friend if you wish” “I wish…” Dark Rider replied. “You see this woman…”

“Uh… Yeah… I see her” the girl smiled at Dark Rider and Largoth. “She needs reach the Shores of Evalon as the third morning passes… It is Corwick’s Wish”.

“Corwick eh…” “The Girl’s Father” the Priest replied. “Alright… That wont be a problem” Dark Rider replied. “How much?” Largoth stepped forward. The Priest smirked, and handed Largoth a bag of gold “That should suffice…” Largoth looked to the Dark Rider, then back to the Priest. “Indeed… But why so lofty a sum?” The Dark Rider smacked Largroth on the arm “Let the man pay what he like…”. The Priest smirked again “Because of him…” the Priest pointed behind the Dark Rider where a huge Man Golem stood.

“GIVE ME THE GIRL HUMAN!!” the Golem demanded. “Right… Largoth get my Horse… And Grab one for yourself” spoke the Dark Rider… “I’ll deal with this” Largoth grabbed the girl, and took her with him to the stables. The Great Man Golem’s Eyes followed after. “Thank You Dark Rider, and Farewell…” the Priest spoke as he ran and disappeared into a nearby alleyway. “Grrr” Grunted the Man Golem.

“I can see you’re not much of a conversationalist…” the Dark Rider spoke to his Opponent. The Man Golem moved at the Dark Rider, but he was much too swift. As he avoided the blow, he drew forth his two swords and hit there sides against the Golems back throwing him off balance. The Man Golem made one more attempt at him, but was out maneuvered once more. “OTO SMASH LITTLE MAN!!” “Hmm… Being Six Foot Three, I can safely say I’ve never been called a “Little Man”” Suddenly Largroth appeared riding a tan horse, the girl was on Tribune. “RARRRGG!!” The Man Golem spewed as he charged once more, but the Dark Rider tripped the Golem, and used it’s back to mount Tribune. “Yah!!” he yelled, and the two horses fled. Atop a near by building The White Owl watched all, and quickly followed.
